This unique castle and village were built in 1882-1884 for the 1884 Italian General Exhibition. The project by portoguese architect Alfredo D'Andrade reproducts 15th Century's buildings, houses, fountains and details from all Piedmont and Vallée d'Aoste.
Capital as well as cultural and business center of the Piedmont region, Turin is famous as headquarters of Fiat and Lancia, birthplace of Telecom Italia and Rai television and host of the 2006 Winter Olympics. Turin has a modern public transport infrastructure so it is easy to get to architectural sites and museums, most notably the Mole Antonelliana, which is the home of the National Cinema Museum. Home to Torino and Juventus, two historical italian football teams, the region is famous as the birth place of solid chocolate over 200 years ago. Gianduiotto is perhaps the most famous Turin chocolate currently in production.
